Obrigado, Pelé

What if Pelé had scored his final goal for Brazil, against Argentina? That’s the premise of 1284, the new short film starring 69-year old Pelé himself, which is ultimately a really touching tribute to the greatest footballer that ever lived.

The film was created by Young and Rubicam Brazil for Brazilian mobile telecommunications company and official national team sponsor, Vivo, and produced by Fernando Meirelles. It’s enough to make me forget The Constant Gardener.
